+2 Degrees

WHAT
These raincoats are designed to play outside in the rain by making inventive use of the rainwater.

WHY
We call rainy days bad weather, but when they become the standard we may have to change that view. If the earth warms by 2 degrees Celsius, the Netherlands will face many more days with heavy, persistent rainfall. So why not change the perspective of the next generation, by celebrating rainy days?

HOW
These raincoats come alive when the skies cloud over. One has a fun funnel in the sleeve, while another collects water in tubes sewn into the hem, and a third unfolds to form a big receptacle for a carry-on puddle.

QUOTE
Is it raining? Let’s go out and play!
